Western PA is incredibly unicyclist friendly. We’ve got 2 events coming up after (hopefully) we thaw out:
- 6 Hours of Brady’s Run- May 10th: Last year’s course was 8-9mi laps with a fair amount of climbing and descending. There are Uni Solo and Uni Duo classes ($25/$50)! The course is excellent and this is an incredibly well run event. Registration opens Feb. 1. https://www.bikereg.com/Net/6-hours-of-bradys-run
If you want to make the trip and need a place to stay, that can be arranged without a problem.
- Dirt Rag’s Dirt Fest- May 16th-18th: This takes place at Raystown Lake in central PA. We’ve had a crew of unicyclists there every year. This is the 3rd year we’ll have a uni demo workshop, and the second year for an official muni group ride. If you want to join our camping crew, register under the Group Camping option and “Butler Wobble” for the group name. Saying this is an amazing event is an understatement. http://www.dirtragdirtfest.com/
Both of these events are centered around biking. However, both WELCOME unicyclists, not just tolerate us. By joining already established events with good backing budgets, we get a chance to enjoy a level of event impossible to pull off with a small number of registrants and low registration fees.
It’s a total win for us. We hope you’ll join us for one or both of these fun weekends!
